with Hammock Camping. I've gone camping with my boys for more
than 10 years and never slept very well on the ground. Last fall,
after being called as Scoutmaster of our troop, I bought a Byer
Amazonas Traveller Hammock.
My first time to try it out was on our Winter Campout the week
between Christmas and New Year's. Our camp was at Rock Enon, VA,
northwest of Winchester on the West Virginia line. The forecast was
for temperatures in the teens, but light - nonexistent winds. I set
up under a tarp with about an inch of padding under my 2 sleeping
bags (one inside the other). I had a hat for my head and a scarf for
my face. I knew that if it got too cold I could bail out and go
inside the cabin. I actually was a little too warm in my set up, but
otherwise had my best night of sleeping ever on a campout. In the
future I'll bring tents for the Scouts, but I'm sticking with my
hammock. I need to add a bug net before our summer camp in August.
